Did the fixture not have a power cord and a rubber gromit or some sort of attacment in the first place? Im thinking that would be the ideal solution to what your talking about..

where is the original ballast? where is its power cord? cant you just wire it to the same general area? or are you building a new lighting fixture?

its just a cheap strip light with the ballast inside. i was just wondering if there was anything to keep the power cord in the fixture other than the ballast wires(so if some moron yanks on it, it doesnt mess up everything)

sodering the wires.. zip ties.. they make wiring clamps for metal outlet boxes that screw down... Ask the local Ace hardware man for some suggestions..
